Aberdeen starlet Dean Campbell can understand why the Dons support is up in arms about some recent results. Derek McInnes’ side have failed to score in the last five league games, heading into tonight’s game against Celtic.

As a result of the poor run, pressure has grown on the Aberdeen manager. The club is also trailing Hibernian in the battle for third in the Premiership.

Campbell is hoping that the Aberdeen squad can remain positive as they bid to end their barren run at Celtic Park.

“Tried to stay positive”

“I understand how the fans are feeling. It has been frustrating recently as we have not been picking up the results that we would have liked. We have just tried to stay as positive as possible and focus on trying to get that next win” he said.

The 19-year-old feels that Aberdeen have not been creating enough chances in recent weeks. However, he does also feel that a bit of bad luck has meant that the goal drought has not ended.

“We have not been creating enough clear-cut chances in recent weeks. Our delivery from set pieces has not been good enough. Also, we have got into some good areas, but our final pass has not been the correct option, or we have not taken on shots when we maybe should have.

“A bit of bad luck”

“Also, maybe a bit of bad luck as we have hit the woodwork on a number of occasions. We are sure things will change” Campbell stated.

The player has broken through into the Aberdeen side this season, and has made 14 appearances for the club. Despite the club’s season not going well, for Campbell personally it has been a more than decent season.

“From a personal point of view, I feel I have improved, physically and on the pitch. I have been happy with the amount of minutes I have had, and I am hoping my development can continue as the weeks go on” he concluded.
